Critical illness polyneuropathy and myopathy as neurological complications of sepsis.

[Critical illness polyneuropathy and myopathy as neurological complications of sepsis]. Nervenarzt. 2016 Feb 3; Authors: Kollmar R Abstract Intensive care unit acquired weakness (ICUAW) is a frequent and severe complication of intensive care management. Within ICUAW critical illness polyneuropathy (CIP) and myopathy (CIM) can be differentiated. The major symptom of ICUAW is progressive quadriparesis, which makes weaning from the respirator more difficult, can appear early after admission to an ICU and can often be detected several months after discharge from the ICU. The pathophysiology of ICUAW is multifactorial and complex. Potential therapeutic approaches are the early and sufficient therapy of mulitorgan dysfunction, optimal control of glucose levels as well as early and intensive physiotherapy. This review article discusses the data on incidence, pathophysiology, diagnostic approaches and prognosis of ICUAW. PMID: 26842898 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Nonintubated thoracic surgery arose as supplemental evolution of minimally invasive surgery and is gaining popularity. A proper nonintubated thoracic surgery unit is mandatory and should involve surgeons, anesthesiologists, intensive care physicians, physiotherapists, psychologists, and scrub and ward nurses. Surgical training should involve experienced and young surgeons. It deserves a step-by-step approach and consolidated experience on video-assisted thoracic surgery. Due to difficulty in reproducing lung and diaphragm movements, training with simulation systems may be of scant value; instead, preceptorships and invited...

In this study, the results of clinical diagnosis of the population of 557 consecutive patients with orofacial pain based on multidisciplinary diagnostics were evaluated. 15.6% of patients have given up on the participation in the study. It has been shown that the patients who dropped out of the study were significantly older (p=0.0411) than those who agreed to participate, but there was no difference in gender ratio (p=0.185) since the proportion of female patients prevailed. In an analysis of 84.4% of patients participating in the study, the elevated anxiety values were established (mean value on STAI 1 was 39.2 and STAI ...

Such lesions can lead to the generation of free radicals, triggering oxidative stress and the release of some inflammatory mediators. Therapeutic ultrasound (UST) is one of the most used electrotherapy resources in the physiotherapist's clinical practice. Our aim was to evaluate the use of therapeutic ultrasound on oxidative stress and...
